Sure, August isn’t even half over yet, but that doesn’t mean we can’t look ahead to the fall. Or December for that matter. Of course, it’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens that we all want to hear about, see footage from, and digest every morsel about, and as luck would have it, Entertainment Weekly‘s Fall Movie Preview arrives this week to fill that gaping void in new Star Wars news that just wasn’t filled by that two seconds of the new footage from the international trailer. Are we spoiled? Absolutely. Do we want more? You’re gosh darn right we do! So get ready for some cool new photos from the biggest film yet to be released in 2015. (more…)


You’ve undoubtedly heard the term “step on a crack and break your mothers back”. Well, have you heard the one “Help a Han Solo and Snap Your Spine”? Of course you haven’t, it doesn’t make for a good jingle. But it does happen. Director J.J. Abrams knows this first hand. He literally broke his back while trying to make Star Wars: The Force Awakens. And yes, Han Solo was involved.  (more…)


Never content to merely exist in the moment so far as Star Wars is concerned, even though we’re still months away from the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, we’re now talking seriously about what comes next in Episode VIII. We know that Rian Johnson is writing and directing the next film in the sequel trilogy, and presumably it will feature much of the cast of The Force Awakens, but isn’t two-and-a-half years out a little much to guess what else is going on with the film? Apparently not. We’ve gotten breaking news today that a renowned and award winning actor is being considered for the bad guy in Episode VIII, and his name is Benicio del Toro. (more…)

I can still remember my shock and disbelief that J.J. Abrams and company would not be bringing any new footage  from Star Wars: The Force Awakens to SDCC 2015. Promising instead that there would be plenty of talk, but no film. Director and Geek Extraordinaire Kevin Smith, thinks otherwise and he’s willing to put big money on the line to prove it. (more…)

Just when you thought it was safe to hope that this year’s San Diego Comic Con wasn’t going to be underwhelming… With a number of big studios and production companies bowing out of this year’s festivities, all hope for awesome things was pegged on the ones who are coming to play. One of them is Warner Bros., who will – presumably – be bringing loads of goodies from Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad. The other hope – oddly enough – was Star Wars. With Hall H Marvel-less this year, all eyes turned to J.J. Abrams et al to make those nerd eyes water with anticipation. And yet, we have to report, that your expectations are going to have to be modulated somewhat. (more…)
